Juan Francisco Estrada is confident that he is a better boxer than countryman Carlos "Principe" Quadras and four division champion Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez.
On a historic night on September 9 in California, plans are being finalized to showcase four of the best super flyweights in the world - with Estrada facing Cuadras for the interim-WBC title, and a rematch between Gonzalez and Thai fighter Srisaket Sor Rungvisai - for the full WBC title.
The winners of both fights will collide at a later date, pursuant to an order issued by the World Boxing Counci.
Estrada has built up a streak of 9 consecutive wins since his last defeat, which took place on the night of November 17, 2011, against Chocolatito.
Estrada brings in a record of 35-2 with 25 KOs, and Estrada has a record of 36 victories, 1 loss and 1 draw with 27 knockouts.
"I have no doubt that I am a better fighter than Cuadras and Chocolatito Gonzalez and I will prove it in the ring.... with Roman I already did that, now I will with Carlos. I train to win," said Estrada.
"We have already observed Cuadras, he is a good fighter who will give us a great fight on September 9. He is one of the best fighters in that weight division, very talkative. I hear everything he's saying but that's what he says about all of the fighters he's facing. But everything he says, he still has to show up in the ring. It's easy to say things, but you're going to have to prove it inside the ring.
"We have better boxing ability and we are going to prove it. That night, I do not care if I break my hand - we are going to throw punches and we are going to win that fight. I feel motivated, we stopped a few times due to injuries but we are already doing well. For this fight in September, we will have good preparation time. We have a lot of time to be at 100%. When I'm in that ring, we are going to win against an opponent who throws a lot of punches but the key is preparation."
